cluded picnics, sing-alongs, prayers, and a special ceremony

Of the 32 women featured in
Playboy's "Girls of the Big Ten"
pictorial, only two are University students.
Terri Beck and Kari Bazzy were
pictured in the September issue of the
magazine, which hit the newsstands
about two weeks ago.
DAVID CHAN, the photographer who
was in charge of shooting women at the
University and four other Big Ten
schools, said he submitted photographs
